Audiophiles in particular will appreciate the 2008 Cadillac Escalade, which has a long roster of standard safety features and a full list of options.

Edmunds reports that in addition to "a power liftgate, an adaptive suspension, park assist and even a heated windshield washer fluid feature" (a godsend for anyone who has had to spend time scraping ice off glass surfaces on cold mornings), the base Cadillac Escalade includes "Bose surround sound audio system with 10 speakers, satellite radio and an in-dash six-CD changer" as standard equipment. It also includes standard heated power seats, tri-zone climate control, and power-adjustable pedals.

Options include an eight-inch touch-screen navigation system, cooled front seats, and power-actuated running boards—and of course, flashy 22-inch rims. Rear parking assist is available, along with a rearview camera; both are incorporated into a package that also includes Cadillac's navigation system. Jalopnik adds that the new Escalade Platinum edition "will be the one of the first vehicles to offer Light Emitting Diode (LED) headlamps." LED lamps last 20 times longer than halogen bulbs and burn at a much cooler temperature. J.D. Power reports that the Platinum model will also include two DVD monitors in a rear-seat entertainment system, with each screen measuring eight inches. This system will include two-channel wireless headphones, auxiliary audio and video inputs, and even a remote game plug-in--which should keep the kids busy and quiet on long road trips.

Conclusion

The 2008 Cadillac Escalade caters to the executives and VIPs who, it seems, all need a fully decked-out 'Slade in their stable.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
